Pete, is there any chance your speedometer is in Kph and you think it is in Mph. 60 kph = approx. 37 mph.
If not, I would say you need to replace speedometer.

No I believe the speed ometer cable is broken.Dissconnect sppedometer cable from instrunent cluster,romove cable from back of speedometer &transmission case .romove speedometer from sppedometer cable housing if broken replace with new & make sure you grease cable when installing back in cale housing reconnect to transmission &back of speedometer.keep posting
Most speed sensors are mounted on the transmission and not that hard to replace.It should be located on the top of the tranny but all cars are different and mounted in different spots on the tranny.Your local auto parts store should be able to give you the exact location of the sensor.Its a matter of one bolt and a connector.
The most likely problem is the speedometer cable is broken, probably near the transmission. if it's the cable, probably under $10. Disconnect the housing at the transmission, and the cable is inside. Pull the cable out, it should be square at both ends. a broken cable is obvious. insert a good cable (with some appropriate cable lube) into the flexable cable housing, you might have to turn the cable a bit to get the end back in the speedometer. If it is broke , you will also have to disconnect the housing at the speedometer to get the other end out. You might be able to reach it from under the dash, but you might have to loosen the instrument cluster to reach it.
Most cars Speedometer cable connect to one of the front wheels, but you said your speedometer sometimes stop then your steering wheel will go stiff, I think you should fix or change your speedometer cable, maybe the cable broken inside. Fix it as soon as possible for your safety.
Speedometer cable has two parts, one is outside cable, mounted and connect to both speedometer and wheel.
The other one is an inside steel cable, outside cable protects the inside cable, because the inside cable turns as soon as you move the car. It is directly connect to the wheel gears and the speedometer inside.
If your car has speedometer cable, I think you need check it right away.
Your steering wheel sometimes stiff, you also need to check your power steering fluid level, sometimes cause this kind problem.
